Maybe Chicago should pass a law against shooting - put up “No Gun Zone” signs. That should help. It worked for the “No Drug Zone” signs. Right?

Fatherless boys, brought up by probably hard-working women, who taught them to do right.

UNFORTUNATELY, the fatherless boys are often motherless because mother works two jobs. She didn't HAVE to get knocked up at 14 and have out of wedlock children, but she probably had an absent father too.

It's a cycle that shouldn't be. It doesn't happen in African tribes. It's an American phenomenon brought on by fatherless boys AND girls who don't have the "hammer" (daddy) to show the boys how to deal with life as an African-American male and the girls how to deal with life as an African-American girl.

Part of the problem is the hyphenated American syndrome. It will continue to be a problem when people identify themselves with hyphenation.

As to the African-American fatherless children....only AFRICAN-AMERICANS can deal with that. Maybe they MIGHT start with
1. ditching the hyphen;
2. INSISTING on sex in marriage, or if they aren't Catholic, birth control, birth control, birth control;
3. ditch the man-gotta-screw image for their boys and
4. get the girls to "just say no."

Am I being OUTLANDISH in these suggestions?

The real cure is two thirds of an old movie line. In this case, send guns and ammo. No lawyers, Chicago has more than it can stand as it is.

Send the guns and ammo to Chicago’s trash areas.

Armed trash is getting better and better at thinning the herd of trash, and Chicago has quite a herd.

Do it for Chicago, do it for America.

‘Sides, the funeral industry can use the business.

OF COURSE, they were to blame. Those young men are, WITHOUT DOUBT, fatherless too. It's the same miserable existence these boys go through: girls who HAVE to screw and end up dropping a bunch of fatherless children. The girls, of course, haven't enough education to go beyond entry-level jobs so THEY stay poor all their lives and repeat the same miserable existence for THEIR brood of bastards.

White Hispanics? I thought all Hispanics were considered Caucasians.

You give these biological female parents too much credit. Most likely their spawn is used as an EITC, EBT, AFDC, WICs, SNAP, SCHIP, etc. qualifier. They are the same cows who call the local reporters and hold up their electric/gas bills for a picture while the widescreen TV, X-Box, Wii and the electric space heaters are in the background.

And don't forget when they hit the lottery when their offspring gets killed by a white or white-hispanic....Gravy Train!. No sympathies here whatsoever.

I don't give a damn about 'cycles'. I want sane people back in charge that flat out tell these heifer breed cows that they can no longer make money off of having children, period. Leeches all. When they stop getting paid to have babies, they will move on to other endeavors.

Nah!

Just a normal weekend of shooting and killing by the Sons Of Barack.

They are killing each other for the children and Bush made them do it.

A reporter on the scene stated that the shooters were wearing hoodies. The reporter was then arrested for a hate crime.

Signs?

Almost half the residents of New Orleans and Detroit cannot read or write, I don't expect Chicago to be much different, eh?

It would be racist of us to put up signs when we know that so many residents cannot read...the signs would just be a reminder of their plight.

BTW, the 'signs' would be sold for scrap metal like the irrigation pipes were in Zimbabwe.

Make them a glue-on poster on street lamps and such so they couldn't be taken down and sold for the metal.

The desire to have children comes from economics. The breeding with thugs comes from simple reality: a woman without a thug on call, becomes prey for all the other thugs in the neighborhood. She then also has an incentive to have her sons grow up to be thugs, so they can protect her when she gets too old to attract thugs into her bed.

Sad commentary on the TOTAL lack of Judeo/Christian values in those neighborhoods.

My idea is more outlandish.

I would offer every inner-city mother $25,000, a big screen TV, and a year free food from the local chicken fast food store if they would surrender all of their pre-kindergarden children, if any, and get their tubes tied. Single females over 14 as well.

Then I would grant the Catholic church license to open orphanages to raise these children through High School prep school.

So I would simply take away all of the under 6-year from inner city mothers, with their permission, and start from scratch raising the children to be good citizens.

The way we are going, in the year 3050 we will still have inner city families the same as they are today.

Seems to me as if those heifer breed cows don't give a DAMN about what YOU want. Why on EARTH should they care?

Bellyaching here does nothing. Have you no suggestions beyond wanting sane people back in charge? Lol. I sure as HELL don't want to run for ANY office. I DON'T want to be in charge of anyone or anything beyond my own bailiwick.
